As Well and As Well As

I love discoveries that students make. Their questions make me see the language with fresh eyes and ears. Some topics only come up when students run into a stumbling block on their own.

I recently had to explain the similarities and differences between as well and as well as. When it comes to similar-looking expressions, a one-time explanation isn’t always enough to erase doubts and build confidence. As follow-up, short practice tasks can do the trick.

If you have high intermediate students who could benefit by comparing and contrasting these two phrases, check out my As Well and As Well As_handout.
